in clinton and new gingrich where everything came to a point. but it has to be dealt with long term. >> do you think the politicians are aware of the ramifications? last they talked about the aaa credit rating. this time around politicians seem to have been taught a lesson. >> you have to have a president who can cut deals and president obama has been poor at doing that and thing people when they vote need to to think about what sort of president l. will he be deal make. clinton was great at that. it can be done. >> let's assume the fiscal qulif is fixed. does that mean we see a major step up in the recovery for the u.s. economy because companies don't feel they have to hang on to that cash and be super cause issue? >> it's a contradiction in terms. we can't get the fiscal cliff fixed and get the growth story. there's no way to fix it just because you want it fixed and steve wants it fixed. it can't get fixed until you get serious growth. politicians focus on getting elected and staying elected. if i was a political consultant to steve who is a nice young photogenic chap and he was running

. regarding fema and this cash spending. under ronald reagan they did it 28 times. okay? under bill clinton, another two terms, 89 times. under george w. bush, they did it 130 times. and under barack obama, who hasn't served a full term yet, it's already up to 153 times. that suggests we're out. fema-izing ourselves if there is such a word. >> you want to be careful with that data. there's a very big year in there, 2011. yes, larry, the trend is upward. once you create an entity like fema you use it a lot. it's a toy. right? the more we say rescue emergency, the more we get used to doing that. that's been a trend in our culture. the weather hasn't gotten that much worse since world war ii, say, to correlate to the number of disasters we claim and call now. so that's a problem. >> so what about -- in all seriousness, about state, local officials? romney makes a point. i don't think romney's saying get rid of fema. i didn't hear that. romney makes a point the governors and mayors and whatever, the town councilmen, they know best how to get things done. why are they losing their power? why is
